One day dental crowns with CEREC
Another way that we try to save every tooth possible is by encasing a weak, broken tooth with a CEREC one-day dental crown. Furthermore, our patients LOVE that they can leave with a new finished crown in one appointment at McBride Dental. NO TEMPORARY!!! So, call Dr. Michael McBride if you want to learn more about receiving a CEREC one-day dental crown in San Marcos, California.
A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is custom made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size.
Your smile may benefit from a crown if a tooth is damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling will not provide a successful restoration. Also, crowns can also be used for a number of other restorative and aesthetic purposes, including:
- Protecting a tooth following root canal treatment
- Anchoring and attaching a dental bridge
- Covering and completing a dental implant
- Enhancing the beauty of your smile
- Improving a misshapen tooth
- Strengthening a tooth that is fractured or weakened
- Supporting a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains
One-day Dental Bridges with CEREC
In some cases, if you are missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge may be recommended by McBride Dental. We will create a tooth replacements that fit well in your mouth so your smile can be restored to full function, appearance, and health. Contact our dentist and team today if you think you might need a dental bridge in San Marcos, California.
If you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth in a row, we may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration, meaning it is non-removable.
First, the custom made dental bridge is prepared by using the two teeth or implants on either side of the missing tooth. Next, the bridge is milled and baked and glazed while you wait. Finally, the bridge is cemented in place and you are on your way! These crowns hold the artificial tooth in place to restore your smile, ensuring that your restoration will not easily shift or come loose.
In most offices it typically requires two visits to complete the dental bridge. But at McBride Dental, we are able to do most bridges in a day, just like the single CEREC crowns. As a result, dental bridges are designed to last for many years. Most of all, we love to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile.
Our dentist may recommend a dental bridge to improve your smile by:
- Restoring your ability to speak, eat, and chew as normal
- Alleviating excess stress on the bite
- Improving the shape and volume of your face
- Replacing an unwanted removable partial denture
- Preventing the remaining natural teeth from moving out of position
- Enhancing the appearance of your smile
